Testimonials

The whole Form-A-Feed team is always ready to help with anything we need. They are great people to work with.

- Jon Qual, Qual Dairy

In the past we have struggled with some butyric haylage and Form-A-Feed’s Troy Brown pointed us to the right product to help ensure we didn’t have to deal with that again.  He has helped us with our forage program for years and continues to push us to get better as well as coach us along […]

- Tanner Schmidt, Jerseyland LLC

I have been raising steers for more than 25 years and have always been on the Tend-R-Leen program. It works well for me with the whole shell corn and protein pellet in my set-up. The results are really good. I’m extremely happy with the results.

- Joe Wollak

Intakes are improved after calving from what we were doing in our previous program. Fresh pen milk is up and Hydro-Lac is the only thing we are doing that is different.

- John Warren

We appreciate the product flexibility and convenience offered with Form-A-Lic tubs. Knowing our cow herd receives a nutrient dense product with consistent intakes makes these tubs a great management tool.

- Polzin Embryo Center

Cattle fill out very nicely before we market them. I’ve used Hydro-Lac for eight years. We feed one pound per head daily for two consecutive days before we market our cattle. After further discussion with my Form-A-Feed representative, I will consider using Hydro-Lac during times of heat stress too.

- Doug Loyson

I can see my calves swarm to the Stress Lic tubs when we put them in. Calves don’t lick ground or gates anymore, and they are healthier.

- Jeff Bremer

We now pay more attention to our operation and are doing a much better job tracking our cattle. We appreciate the individualized attention to our operation that we receive from Form-A-Feed. They actually walk our cattle prior to making recommendations and take the time to discuss them with us. We are able to make necessary […]

- Gene & David McClellan

We started using the Tend-R-Leen 525 NBC product last year on our calves on pasture to make up a creep feed using our corn out of the bin so there wasn’t so much out-of-pocket expense.  We mixed it ourselves and used our seed tender to deliver it to creep feeders on pasture. We feel the […]
